hello & good day {mama elephant guest designer}

****This is my 3rd (and final) post of the day!  Scroll down to see my lawn fawn inspiration week and lawnscaping challenge posts****


I am so thrilled to be guest designing with Mama Elephant this month!  Welcome to the Mama Elephant April Stampede:

For the stampede, I created a card with my favorite new set, tree friends.



hello & good day

This set is so soft and pretty!  I stamped the tree and colored it in with copics, adding a few falling leaves and a squirrel silhouette to the mix.  

hello & good day

And, because I didn't want to cover up the beautiful tree, I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and added glue dots behind a couple of sequins to hold it in place.

hello & good day

I hope you like what I've created!
